Latest tender news is a boost for Arriva
In the latest round of tendering results from Transport for London, Arriva have retained route 2 (Norwood - Marylebone) route 432 (Anerley – Brixton) route 59 (Streatham Hill – Kings Cross) route 109 (Croydon - Brixton) and route 444 (Chingford – Turnpike Lane).
In addition Arriva have been awarded route 133 (Streatham – Liverpool Street) and 325 (East Beckton – Prince Regent Station).
Commercial Director, Peter Batty said: “Whilst this is excellent news it must be understood that these re-awards would not have happened if we did not look closely at all areas of cost and work together to accept changes that give the business the best chance to retain jobs within Arriva London in what has become an extremely competitive market.
“The re-award of these contracts also recognises the high standard of service quality we have provided, consistently exceeding TfL’s minimum performance standards.”
The new contracts for the 59, 109 and 133 start in January next year, the 325 and 444 in March and the 2 and 432 in April.
Routes 2, 109, 432 and 444 will continue to be operated with existing vehicles refurbished to the latest TfL specification. Route 59 will be a mix of existing and new.
It is intended that route 133 will operate from Brixton garage and route 325 from Barking, both will be operated with new vehicles.

Last June, Arriva London was delighted to have been re-awarded the TfL contract to run route W6 (Edmonton Green – Southgate Station) for a further five years, starting in January 2018 with brand new buses.
Reporting to the Purchasing, Stores and Administration Manager, this vacancy is for an experienced Storekeeper with Administrative experience, based at our Grays garage. You will support the garage team by ensuring an efficient supply of vehicle parts for the maintenance teams. This role is a 6 to 12 month maternity cover contract.
We currently have a vacancy for a Garage Supervisor in Enfield.
This is a key role within the organisation and the work is wide ranging, interesting and vital to the smooth running of the garage and its performance.
As the festive season approaches, we all look forward to the good-will of giving and receiving, and this was truly illustrated last week when members of our staff made a tour of London, on our open top bus, to meet representatives of some of their charities they give to through their Payroll Giving and celebrate #GivingTuesday.
Arriva London scooped three awards at the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards held in November.
